Towards the end of 2017 I lost a friend. Someone who had been very supportive to me when I had my own children small.
In 2018 I learned that her daughter was expecting her first child and I was determined to make a quilt for her. I knew that her mum would've liked that. So, this is that quilt.
A precious baby boy was born earlier this month and, I hope that this quilt will wrap him in the love that I know his grandmother would've given him if she had still been here to see him.
I quilted it strip by strip using different FMQ designs. I am delighted with how well it has turned out.
This quilt is gorgeous, you did an amazing job on the quilting and your dear friends daughter will be so pleased . I am so sorry for your loss and especially sorry she didn't get to see her grandson but in my heart I know she is looking down and smiling.ReplyDelete
